nhe to close to in-person instruction may 5-7 due to covid-19 cases

We have confirmed several new active positive COVID-19 cases at North Hills Elementary School, which brings our total within the current 14-day window to seven (7) cases. 

The District will CLOSE North Hills Elementary School to in-person instruction of students from Wednesday, May 5, 2021 to Friday, May 7, 2021, in accordance with guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Health. This closure will provide an opportunity for our maintenance and custodial staff to clean and sanitize the building and campus and is an attempt to continue preventing the spread of COVID-19 within our schools and facilities. 

Our faculty will provide remote instruction to North Hills Elementary students during this closure. North Hills students and families will receive a separate communication from Principal Youcheff.

North Hills will reopen for in-person instruction on May 10, 2021.

Please note – All other schools are OPEN and district operations continue as normal at this time.

Central york to present les miserables school edition via on-demand streaming may 2

Central York Performing Arts is proud to present Les Misérables School Edition for the Central York community.  In a year like no other, where we have missed so much, CYPA sought to find a way to present our annual musical theater production in a safe and responsible way that still allowed us to achieve the level of excellence our patrons expect.

CYPA worked for four months to rehearse and film our production, which takes the form of a staged concert (similar to the 10th Anniversary and 25th Anniversary Concerts produced by Cameron Mackintosh).  Over 60 CYHS students were involved in making this filmed production a reality.

CYPA’s Les Misérables is available for on-demand streaming (starting May 2, 2021).  We hope you will find some time in the next few weeks to enjoy this brilliant production and our labor of love.  We are so proud of our students, who put their heart into making this a truly moving and brilliant production.
